Westok Achieves New Certifications

ASD Westok, a specialist structural steelwork fabricator, has recently attained new fabrication certifications – RQSC for bridgeworks and other forms of fabrication work, as well as the addition of weathering steel to our UKCA FPC certification – further strengthening our commitment to quality and excellence in steel processing and fabrication for the construction, highways and modular sector.

The RQSC (Register of Qualified Steelwork Contractors) scheme is a certification and registration system that ensures contractors meet stringent standards of competence, quality, and safety in the fabrication of bridgework and structural steelwork.

Certification to date covered specialist fabrication such as cellular beams and plate girders. ASD Westok have upgraded their certification to widen their fabrication offer for bridgework and buildings.

ASD Westok’s is now registered for these additional forms of fabrication covering a wide variety of building categories:

  • Bridgeworks
  • Heavy industrial platework
  • High-rise buildings
  • Large span portals
  • Medium/small span portals and low-rise buildings
  • Medium-rise buildings
  • Large span trusswork
  • Architectural steelwork
  • Frames for machinery, supports for plant and conveyors
  • Large grandstands and stadia
  • Lighter fabrications including fire escapes, ladders, and catwalks

The UKCA (UK Conformity Assessed) FPC (Factory Production Control) Welding Certificate indicates the compliance with specific standards and regulations for welding processes and factory production control within the United Kingdom. This certificate is crucial for demonstrating that Westok’s welding practices and production processes meet the required safety, quality, and performance criteria under UK legislation.

The newly acquired weathering steel certification facilitates the manufacture and fabrication of weathering steel components and beams, further widening their service offering to the construction industry.

ASD Westok offers fabrication works up to EXC-4 holding dual certification for both UKCA and CE accreditation.  These comprehensive capabilities and their commitment to quality ensure that ASD Westok continues to be a trusted partner in the steelwork fabrication industry, delivering excellence in every project they undertake.
